“Equality for All”: An expression reserved for sophists and children.
Like children, the Obamas have an obsession with portion control that borders on the nonsensical. Like tots feverishly skirmishing over the biggest piece of peanut butter and jelly, both end up unhappy with the results – both decry “unfair!” Something must be done to ensure the equal distribution of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches among the petulant set!
Most of us get over the unpleasantness of inequality and gradually accept its cold realties; others still live on Sesame Street.
Equality only exists in existential theories – theories given to us by class baiters whose sole purpose is to sow seeds of discord, distrust and class struggle. Fiscally speaking, BHO is taking PB&J portion control to the masses. It’s only a matter of time when we will hear platitudes of consumption constraints and sandwich bread guarantees.
For him, for the left, equality is something achievable; or something that should be. Income equality! Marriage equality! Equal access to healthcare! It’s as if the left is blind to the concept of scarcity of goods.
May Dante’s nine circles of Hades help those with common sense who point out the stark reality that equality is unachievable – there’s only so much Skippy to go around. No corrective policy can eradicate that fact.
President Obama endeavors to substantiate his assertions that he and his friends in government are the fount of job creation and economic growth. He would rather publicly chastise the private sector from the podium than engage opposing points of view in meaningful dialogue. He didactically chastens the successful on his low-information, re-education tours. ”If you’ve been successful, you didn’t build that on your own…If you got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Barack Obama has no intention of engaging job creators who do not embrace Government Inc. solutions. In his estimation, these private sector types are regressive. In his progressive mindset, he believes that the burden is upon him to further the march of economic history from the feudal and capitalistic towards the commune. Free market thinkers stand in his wake.
For all his laser-like focus and claims of generating economic growth, all he has to show for it is “Cash for Clunkers”, government stimulus and Detroit. Meanwhile the prosperous are thwarted for their efforts; stifled by regulatory complexities – see the North Dakota oil industry.
As Barack Obama departs on Equality for All! campaign, let us not accept his premise that capitalism has failed us. When he asserts crony capitalism as the culprit, point out Solyndra. When he asserts corporate greed, point out the influx of Congressional millionaires in his midst. When he censures tax cuts for the rich, have him define rich. Is “rich” Beyonce, or is “rich” couples whose dual income nears the $200,000 mark?
BHO and the left need to be denounced as the economic experts that they present themselves to be. Strip away their premises of equality and expose them as the sophists that they are.
Economic growth is the domain of the entrepreneur, the free market advocate and the business networks, not dystopian theorists. No more playing prevent defense.
A word of caution: be prepared to guard yourself from the pitchforks of bigotry and the torches of detestation because the unicorn crowd is about to shed its impish demeanor and go medieval on your backside when it is irrefutably stated that equality, like Santa Claus does not exist.
